the stereotype is that they only eat burgers and chips but this isn't true, although perhaps some do eat too much fast food. there are a huge range of foods eaten in the states. the americans who answered above have listed some. by the way your english is excellent.

Americans often eat Chinese food, mostly take-out. Pizza and Italian food are popular, as are burgers, fries, and fried chicken. Thai food is very popular and so is sushi. Asian-fusion foods are au courrant here - Vietnamese, Korean, Thai, Japanese, Chinese influences and combinations. Indian food is popular. BBQ is a big American favorite. Regional cooking is also well received - Chili, Tex-Mex, Northeastern chowders and fish, Northwestern fish, Southern and New Orleans styles like gumbos, cajun and creole, and low country cooking. Southwestern chile types of recipes are popular. Salads and unusual pizzas are popular in California. But, just like in China, there are thousands of cuisines and variations of cooking and cooking styles. French, German, Polish, Cuban, Moroccan, the cuisines of every country are found and enjoyed here.

For many Americans, they find themselves constantly running errands and things and typically will stop off at a restaurant like McDonald's to have a hamburger. This is but an example of course. However, you will find a huge melting pot of foods from all over the world here in America. Because we all come from so many different cultures. Depending on where you live in America you will be amazed. In Texas, everything is big. We are talking steaks and potatoes and great big bowls of chili. Or how about in New Mexico, where you will find many mexican and spanish dishes. Go up north and its all about fish and hearty stews and soups. If you ever get a chance to come to America, you may be a bit overwhelmed by all the choices that are available.

Hi, welcome to mylot! I think you speak English very well. In America, we have so many options of food to choose from that I think it would be hard to say what is most common. In my family, we don't eat at restaurants very often, but we like to try lots of different recipes at home. My husband and I enjoy cooking together so we try to make a new recipe every weekend. We like to try foods and recipes from different countries. Our local grocery store carries many foods from all over the world, so that makes it fun.

Well KFC used to be called Kentucky Fried Chicken. What it is are pieces of chicken covered in batter and deep fried. That is what we consider a fast food product here, other popular fast food places here sell hamburgers and other types of sandwiches. But those who wish to be healthy do not eat a lot of fast food. Since America is a melting pot full of people who originated from all over the world we eat all kinds of different things here. Believe it or not my family actually eat Chinese food once a week, I have been learning how to cook Chinese food for several years now and I am pretty good at it now. But sometimes we will eat Mexican food or Indian food but I am probably more of an adventerous cook then most. Most Americans usually eat a combination of a vegetable, a starch (potatoes, rice, noodles), and some sort of meat for dinner in the evenings unless they are vegetarians then they will eat some kind of non meat protein such as beans. We Americans also love soups and chilis as well.

I don't think that anyone at my lot will make fun of you. If any of them do, challenge them to speak to you in Chinese. We eat a variety of foods here. There are Chinese, Japanese, Sushi, Italian, French and almost every nationality restaurant that you can think of. We eat lots of hamburgers, french fries, hot dogs and pizza when we eat out. When my family eats at home, we usually have a salad, chicken or fish and some vegetables.
